WeatherCat General Discussion / Re: WeatherCat crashing

I think Apple stopped selling those about 10 years ago... not sure how they were designed to be used with other, non-Apple software or what format they might have used. "Webcam" does not really apply to any camera that can be attached to a computer although the maker may create software that allows them to be used that way. I think most of cameras that are used by WC are designed to actually store the images somewhere on the computer or include a specific address/location where the output can be accessed. Simply displaying an real-time image on the computer screen is probably not enough for WC.

WeatherCat General Discussion / Re: WeatherCat crashing

Thanks all

As I mentioned above my previous webcam was an Apple iSight which caused WC2 to crash at very regular intervals and did not allow WC3 to run at all.  I would have thought that a genuine Apple product would be OK.  Both webcams work fine with other software. 

WC is steady as a rock without a webcam.  It is not that important really, rather than buy yet another webcam I think I will not bother. 

Thanks for the replies anyway, much appreciated.

Yes, Weather underground is uploads is the only thing I us from WC. Makes preference entry much easier.

Should have said jpegs for the webcam.

Haha, I'm sure I have you mixed up with another user. You are the user with WUnderground complications. So skip my comments about webcam preferences. I was off in Lala Land, where I spend most of my time these days.

I don't use WC for the webcam. The DLink has a web interface built in firmware that lets me schedule and FTP photos.

Thanks,

I think I will give it a try.

My suggestion is to leave the webcam out of it until you have WeatherCat running without the webcam using the new plist. If you are stable for a few days, duplicate the plist file (so you have a copy of a good clean one that works), then see what happens when you add the webcam preferences back in.

Good luck and let us know what happens. Many a weird issue has been resolved with a brand new plist so we'll hope this is the case with yours.

Make sure you have documented all of your WeatherCat preferences before doing this. Screenshots are the easiest way.

To re-create a new plist file:
  • Close WeatherCat
  • Delete user/Library/Preferences/com.trixology.weathercat.plist
  • Empty trash
  • Restart iMac
  • Open up WeatherCat
  • Re-enter all WeatherCat Preferences
